The 82nd Suggestion: I'm Your Son (あんたの息子だぜ, Anta no Musuko daze) is the eighty-second chapter of the series Medaka Box.


Zenkichi grows increasingly angry with with Kumagawa's behavior. Emukae apologizes to Kumagawa for breaking the barrier. Kumgawa brushes off Emukae's apology, stating that he has defeated Parasite Seeing's user before. Hitomi tells Zenkichi not to be distracted by Kumagawa, and asks about what he saw through Emukae's vision. He explains to his mother that Emukae already sees the whole world as rotting. Taking Emukae's hand, Kumagawa forces her to create a giant plant monster to fight, shocking all watching. Kumagawa stands back to watch after doing so. Zenkichi asks Hitomi to keep it distracted so that he can talk to Emukae, Hitomi asks him if he thinks he can make her happy; he answers in the affirmative. Satisfied, Hitomi draws a chainsaw and rushes the giant plant. As Emukae contends with Hitomi, she is approached by Zenkichi, who tells her about the dead sakura tree at his home, and states that with her Minus, Emukae could probably restore it. He offers Emukae his hand, and as she insists that Kumagawa would make her cruel acts nothing, Zenkichi takes both her hands, promising he will not make her actions nothing. As Emukae calms down, Hitomi tells her not to die, and Zenkichi tells her to entrust her worries to the suggestion box. Watching from the monitors, Medaka smiles. An irate Kumagawa attacks both Zenkichi and Emukae, erasing Emukae's Minus. Hitomi asks him if he has given up on a draw as she retrieves Emukae's key. Kumagawa tells Hitomi he still fully intends to end the match with a draw, revealing he has removed the keyholes from the bracelets, just as the clocks run down.
